Description
pdf-route01
This short, but at times strenuous, walk provides great views of the mountains and rural countryside around Arona and down, in the distance, to the resort towns of the southern coast. The route starts and ends in the Plaza del Cristo de la Salud at the heart of Arona’s old town. It ascends, mainly on old rocky “caminos”, to the Casas de Altavista, a set of old rural houses, typical of the area. The descent is on quiet paved roads.

A short description of this route can be found in the leaflet produced by Arona Ayuntamiento entitled “Caminos y Pasajes con Historia ARONA RURAL”. The walk is entitled “Circular Casas de Altavista”.
